Best Purple Shampoo’s
Whether you’re a natural blonde or not, having Purple Shampoo in your arsenal is a must! A lot of money and time goes into having those light locks so why not put in a bit of effort to maintain blonde the way you like it?
What Purple Shampoo, also referred to as Silver Shampoo, does is combat any yellow or brassy tones. The violet pigments in the shampoo are what help neutralize those unwanted tones.
There are tons of different Purple Shampoo’s out there and not all are created equal. To help you narrow down your search here are 5 of the best Purple Shampoo’s, some of which I have tried and others I plan to.
Sterling Silver Toning Shampoo
A favorite of mine and the employees at Ulta is the AG Colour Care Sterling Silver Toning Shampoo. If you’re looking for a more ashy look this is the shampoo for you. This mild toning shampoo does just that, tone down any brassy and yellow tones.
What’s great about this shampoo is that unlike many other Purple Shampoo’s this one smells great. It is also free of: Gluten, PABA, Parabens, Salt, DEA, and Animal Testing. Because of its better ingredients this Purple Shampoo is on the pricier side. Ranging from $20 to $48 depending on the size.

Color Endure Violet Shampoo
A very popular Purple Shampoo is Joico’s Color Endure Violet Shampoo. Known for its quality and effectiveness, this Purple Shampoo “will create a brighter tone to your light, colored hair, canceling out yellowness created by oxidation. Plus, it will add strength and protect your hair from environmental and physical damage”.
The Color Endure Violet Shampoo is Sulfate-free but there is also the Color Balance Purple Shampoo that has the same effect. If you can, opt for the Sulfate-free shampoo. Depending on the size price varies starting at $15.99.

Shimmer Lights Shampoo
One of the most cost effective shampoo you can buy is this Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo for only $12.99. This truly gets the job done. If your goal is to brighten up your blonde this shampoo will be a good choice for you. In my experience this shampoo does have a strong smell, is drying and does more brightening than toning.
